Trump on Putin: 'We get along very, very well' - CBN interview

Emin is also the executive vice president of his dad's business, allegedly in charge of the malls and restaurants.

For Trump's purposes, his big first-time summit with Putin looks like a much bigger "nothing burger" than the email trail of his son Donald Trump Jr.

A Texas Republican is calling for President Donald Trump's adult children to step away from the White House, marking one of the strongest GOP responses yet to the intrigue surrounding the Trump campaign's activities in last year's White House race.

Similarly, in Jackson and Piketon, Ohio, Donald Trump Jr.'s troubles appeared to strengthen support for his father and Trump family members who many in the area see as embattled victims. In its story on them, the Times said it sought comment from Trump Jr., but he didn't respond and then released the emails on his own.

However, said Hayden, "we know they did this", but Trump turned the conversation into a discussion whether there was enough evidence to hold Russia to account.

The lawmakers spoke one day after Donald Trump Jr. disclosed on Twitter a series of emails that revealed his eagerness to hear negative material on Clinton from a Russian lawyer.

Perhaps coincidentally, this appears to be the exact scenario described by Secretary Clinton six weeks ago during a public interview she conducted at the Code Conference in late May. In the overture his son had received for the meeting last summer, Trump Jr was told that Putin supported his father's candidacy.

The new bill introduced on Wednesday would eliminate that change to allow House Democrats, as well as Republicans, to force a vote on a resolution of disapproval of any effort to ease Russia sanctions.

In the mindset of businessman Trump's transactional world, the meeting of his son, son-in-law and campaign manager with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya gets dismissed as something akin to a bad sales lead. In retrospect, do you believe this meeting to have been appropriate or not?

Mr Goldstone mentioned that Emin could not talk because he was on stage in Moscow.

In the White House interview, the president said he directly asked Russian President Vladimir Putin if he was involved in what U.S. intelligence says was Russian meddling in the presidential campaign and that Putin had insisted he was not.

What ever happened to the other Russian all the Trump people were talking to during the campaign - the jolly ambassador?

"We shouldn't get in front of our skis, either calling it a 'nothing burger' or collusion", said commentator Meghan McCain, on the Fox midday show Outnumbered.

Political memories are short, but they shouldn't be this short.

This was bolstered yesterday when the American president sat down with Reuters for an interview.

"The women now are beautiful", Mr Trump brags of the Miss Universe contestants at one point.

"I think this is some sort of fiction".

So far, he doesn't seem to be giving Putin what we presume Putin wants - a lifting of sanctions, for example.

"Attorney General Jeff Sessions at his January confirmation hearing was asked by Democratic Senator Al Franken about allegations that Trump associates had contact with Russian officials about the presidential campaign". So easy to be with that Jeff Sessions didn't even remember they'd met. Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, oversaw digital strategy for the campaign. Or rather, how truthful is his expression of his knowledge? Ben Cardin after the death in a Russian prison of lawyer Sergei Magnitsky, who had been investigating incidents of fraud by Russian tax officials.
